- £4,100.00 – £5,000.00 GBP
For those Backgammon players who like a “noisy” game but also require the ultimate in luxury, we have twinned the two ancient and traditional crafts of the woodworker and the leather-worker to stunning effect.
Choices, Choices, Choices
Our wooden boards are created with a Marquetry veneered playing field; as with all of our boards, there are options to choose from;
- Burr Walnut with Birdseye Maple & Burr Oak points
- Macassar Ebony with Maple & Cedar points
- Figured Sycamore with Santos Rosewood & Cedar points
- £4,100.00 – £5,025.00 GBP
Cutting edge and contemporary – our “carbon fibre” style leather backgammon boards look the part offering those who love the game, and the racetrack a way to combine their passions.
Available in traditional Black; Red; Silver; Yellow or chic Orange hides, our “Carbon fibre” effect leather is synonymous with life in the fast lane!
Elegant, striking and contemporary – these boards will add a cutting-edge feel to any setting. The Carbon Fibre is still leather, it is imprinted to look like carbon fibre giving the skin a beautiful texture & playing style.
- £4,100.00 – £5,025.00 GBPAn ever-growing Geoffrey Parker favourite… semi-perforated leather gives a contemporary super-car feel to our luxury backgammon sets.
Available in black and racing red hides, our Automotive hide is synonymous with supercar marques the like of McLaren and Lamborghini who have used this for their luxury interiors. In fact, we have been asked to make a few Backgammon to match a number of car interiors over the years.
However, despite its luxuriously soft feel, it is only suitable for cases and dice cups as the little holes in the leather form a vacuum when used as a playing field and slow play down considerably. So we twin this with our specially tanned for Backgammon leather; our Dauphin calf for the inside of the cases. This makes for a splendid marriage.
All the usual professional specifications are included in the build as on our other Bespoke boards and these special editions are available in all sizes and in either Contemporary Class or Prestige Classes and in both attaché or table-top editions.Design Your Backgammon
- £4,175.00 – £5,250.00 GBP
Our Bridle Hide backgammon set is timelessly beautiful. Think of the classically attired British businessman with their traditional and often battered and loved attaché case as they swing through the doors of their favourite gentleman’s club – for this is the style our Bridle hide backgammon range evokes.
- £5,075.00 – £6,475.00 GBPIncorporating water snake into our backgammon designs makes for an exceptionally luxury game!
Hardwicke’s Sea or Water Snakeskins are sought from our tanners in Thailand and offer a huge array of beautiful colours for our craftsmen to work with. The lighter colours show the spin markings making the skins even more exotic in look. Unlike most snake skins, water snake does not have scales that lift up, as this would be a problem when playing a friction based game like Backgammon.

- £6,350.00 GBPTruly aimed at the avid player who does not want to compromise!
Many of our customers are both keen Backgammon and Chess players who wants to offer the very best to their competitors when on the move. So we at Geoffrey Parker thought well, OK, let’s put two professional specification pieces together – yes it may weigh a bit but perhaps someone will bring it onto the deck for you or to your salon table? Neatly stowed away within one attaché case is another attaché case!
Firstly there is our famous tournament size Backgammon, fully hand inlaid in leather (or wood) and available in all the usual specifications our Championship boards carry. Then lying inside is a slim professional folding Chessboard attaché; fully hand inlaid in matching leather livery and containing safely stowed in padded sumptuous suede; a chess set of your choosing. Of course, you may wish to take these to separate destinations or allow your friends to disappear to their suite with one or the other; but at the end of the day, they make easy bedfellows and can be neatly stowed away for when the next travel bug bites!
- £15,000.00 – £19,995.00 GBPIn either matte or gloss finish; top grade Alligator is simply gorgeous!
Our specialist team of master craftsmen who work on exceptional projects involving Alligator and other exotic skins; use their skills handed down from generation to generation to cut and handle these, often difficult, natural materials.
But despite this patient and exacting work, it all pays off in the end and produces a wonderful piece of craftsmanship which stands out in any crowd. There are many “mock-crocs” produced (some we have used for clients wanting the look without the cost) but there is nothing quite like the real thing which folk “in the know” will instantly recognise.
- £300,000.00 GBPWhen the only the best is required……
Showcased here is a super-enriched personal commission for a private jet. An Alligator and Gold tournament size Backgammon.
All hardware (locks, handle plates and rings) are 18ct solid hallmarked white Gold. The case and field are in finest Alligator (we use the same tanners as Hermès) in a gloss finish. The points have been inlaid in Shagreen (Stingray) which we source in the Far East.
The stones/checkers are Gold, in white, and yellow finish. Then set with a one carat Diamond in each. To the edge, we have inlaid Shagreen and to the underside Alligator.
With precious stones/checkers like these, they need to be protected, not just from the normal rigours of play but also from each other – so we designed a special padded suede stowage area at the front of the case to cocoon each in its own individual compartment sitting either side of the 18ct white Gold Doubling cube which has both initials and numbers set in Diamonds.
The Alligator cups which are suede lined are stowed within a separate Alligator cabinet are joined by four 18ct white Gold spot dice with Diamonds as the “spots”! Also placed here are 4 ball cornered precision dice, all lined and padded in suede.
To the outside of the case set into the centre of the lid is an 18ct white Gold plaque where initials are set again in Diamonds.
To get the dice rolling, please email our Special Commission team to discuss your requirements – basically, anything can be done, so do not hold back!
